Western Australia’s leading youth organisation working with the Western Australia Police Force and the community to empower children and young people to reach their potential.
The Western Australian Police and Community Youth Centres (WA PCYC) exists so that disadvantaged children and young people at risk across Western Australia have a safe place to go – somewhere they can feel at home, make friends and do things that young people should do. Our recreational activities, diversionary programs and alternate education and training opportunities keep children and young people active and engaged so that they can reach their potential and stay on a positive life path.
The objects of the Association are to empower and assist disadvantaged and at-risk children and young people across Western Australia by:
(a) getting young people active in life;
(b) working with young people to develop their skills, character and leadership;
(c) reducing and preventing anti-social behaviour and crime by and against young people;
(d) providing a safe environment for young people;
(e) engaging with young people on their terms; and
(f) working effectively and constructively with the Western Australian Police Force, communities and other organisations.
